Romans 8.18-25
18 - For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are
not worthy to be compared with the glory that will be revealed in
us.
19 - For the ardent expectation of the creature awaits the
manifestation of the children of God.
20 - For the creation was subject to vanity, not by its will, but
because of him who subjected it,
21 - in the hope that the same creature will also be freed from
the bondage of corruption, into the freedom of the glory of the
children of God. 6
22 - For we know that the whole creation groans and is in
labor pains together until now.
23 - And not only she, but we ourselves, who have the
firstfruits of the Spirit, also groan within ourselves,
waiting for the adoption, that is, the redemption of our
body.
24 - For in hope we are saved. Now, the hope that is seen
is not hope; for what a man sees, how shall he expect it?
25 - But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait
patiently for it.

INTRODUCTION
From the moment the believer is born again, he is called to live a
life of hope. In this sense, Christian hope has its foundation in
the resurrection of the Lord Jesus (1 Peter 1:3, 21). It is a
powerful work of God that moves the Church of Christ to work
for the cause of his kingdom. Thus, this week's lesson is
intended to expose the teaching of Christian hope and how
important it is in our journey to heaven.

CHRISTIAN’S HOPE POINT TO?
I – WHERE DOES THE CHRISTIAN’S HOPE
POINT TO?
1. Christian hope. According to the New Testament, “hope” is
a favorable and confident expectation that is based on what
cannot be seen, on the future (Rm 8.24,25). In this case, she can
anticipate what is good (Titus 1.2; 1 Peter 1.21). It is no
coincidence that the apostle Paul writes that the Christian's hope
was established through Christ, the “hope of glory” and “our
hope” (Col 1:27; 1 Tim 1:1). Therefore, from a biblical point of
view, we can say that hope is “confidence in the fulfillment of a
great expectation”.
11
2. Hope in the letters of the apostle Paul. The subject of
Christian hope is very present in Paul's apostolic letters. In them,
we see hope in the resurrection of the dead in Christ (Acts 23:6;
1 Thess 4:13,14); the hope of the promise being fulfilled (Acts
26:6,7); the hope of righteousness (Gal 5:5); the hope of the
Gospel (Col 1.5); the hope of the rapture of the Church (1
Thess 5.8); the hope of the vocation (Eph 1:18); the hope of
eternal life (Titus 1.2; 3.7); and, finally, the hope of the appearing
of the glory of God and the Lord Jesus Christ (Titus 2:13). In
Paul's First Letter to the Corinthians, hope appears as the second
virtue mentioned there (1 Cor 13:13).
12
3. God: the author of our hope. This hope is a consequence of
the New Birth in Christ Jesus, so that this process involves a fully
supernatural, spiritual work (1 Pet 1.23). Therefore, God is the
author of our hope, as the apostle Paul shows in his letter (Rm
15.13). Therefore, through this living hope, we are ready to
perseveringly endure all the hardships along our journey to Heaven
(Heb 10.32-36). Now, our faith has been tested by history through
cruel persecutions and many other challenges that have always tested
us. However, the Church of Christ never succumbed to them, it
always prospered and flourished because of a glorious hope that
they could never take away from us, the confidence in eternal life
with God (Acts 20:24).
13
Christian Hope, which has God
as its author, points to the
future, a glorious reality
SYNOPSIS I

II – THE ESCATOLOGICAL
PERSPECTIVE OF CHRISTIAN
HOPE
16
II – THE ESCATOLOGICAL PERSPECTIVE
OF CHRISTIAN HOPE
1. The Bible focuses on the future. The story of Creation
begins with God. The first book of the Bible, Genesis, reveals
this to us. Unfortunately, as the events at the beginning of
Genesis unfolded, sin caused disharmony in Creation. However,
God acts to make everything perfect, balanced and harmonious
again. This is what the apostle Paul reveals through his mention
of the cosmic scope of the death of Jesus Christ (Eph 1:10).
This promise originated in Eden, with the woman's descendant,
and is revealed today through Christ as the guiding thread of the
Holy Scriptures (Gen 3.15; Rev 12.9).
17
2. Hope in the future brings comfort and joy to the believer.
The doctrine of the last things, called Eschatology, studies future
things. Many live in fear of the future, of what could happen to
them, but Christians take comfort and rejoice in what the Bible
says about the future (Rm 15.4). In this aspect, what the Word
of God says about what awaits us in eternity with Christ is
glorious and incomparable, in that the afflictions of the present
time cannot be compared with the glory to be revealed in us
(Rm 8.18). Thus, the Bible is a book of prophecy that produces
joy and comfort in the heart of the believer. In it, we find a
sovereign God, who governs our lives and acts in favor of his
people.
18
3. Why a doctrine of hope? The reason we have a doctrine of
hope is because we trust in the promise of the resurrection of
those who died in Christ, of the transformation of those who
are alive at his return (1 Thess 4.13-18). It is a glorious promise
to reign with Christ. As we have not yet achieved this promise,
we live in hope that everything will soon be fulfilled, because
whoever made the promise is faithful to fulfill it (Hb 10.23).
Biblical hope brings comfort and joy to the
believer throughout his career.
SYNOPSIS II

III – CHRISTIAN HOPE AS
ANCHOR OF THE SOUL
21
III – CHRISTIAN HOPE AS ANCHOR OF
THE SOUL
1. Our hope as an anchor. We can describe the anchor as a
heavy piece of iron attached to a thick chain and thrown to the
bottom of the sea with the purpose of keeping a ship stationary
(Acts 27:29). The writer of Hebrews describes Christian hope as
a “sure and steadfast anchor of the soul” during the journey
with Christ (Heb 6:18,19). It represents everything that sustains
and stabilizes the believer's soul in times of uncertainty.
22
2. Why is the believer's hope the best? This hope that brings certainty
to the soul of the saved cannot be compared with the hope of the
wicked. The apostle Paul states that, without Christ, there is no hope for
human beings (Eph 2:12). Therefore, it is a vain hope. Consequently,
there are several hopes present in human culture. For example, there are
religions that express their hope in a cyclical history, as in Hinduism, in
which life is seen according to the cycle of birth, death and
reincarnation; other people seek to base their hope on astrology,
palmistry, among various pagan practices that the Bible prohibits; In
politics, many base their hopes on revolutionary actions that are nothing
more than illusion. In summary, we can say that all hope outside of
Christ is empty, meaningless; hope in Christ is safe, consoling and with
purpose (Col 1.27).
23
3. Holding firm to hope. In light of the New Testament, we
affirm that the Second Coming of Christ is the great reason for
the believer to remain firm and maintain his hope, so that this
requires a life of purity to enjoy the promise of being as Jesus is
(1 John 3.2, 3). In those days, Christ's disciples understood that
his coming would be imminent, that is, it could happen at any
time (Mt 25.1-13). Similarly, we must be in readiness, awaiting
the day when our Lord will rapture his Church. We do not know
the day or hour that the Lord will come, but our part is to keep
our hope alive and firm (Luke 18:8).
Hope is an anchor for the soul, as
it brings firmness and solidity in
uncertain times.

CONCLUSION
Struggles, unpleasantness, trials, death, among other
things, those saved in Christ will be able to face all of this
based on the true hope that is Christ Jesus, our Lord. This
way, we will continue our journey without fear and
without losing faith. History has witnessed that
Christianity grew and prospered because Christians
understood that this life is provisional, being just a part of
a much greater whole: eternity with Christ. Therefore, let
us hold fast the confession of our hope, for he who
promised is faithful (Heb 10:23).
1. According to the lesson, and from a biblical point
of view, what is hope?
From a biblical point of view, we can say that hope
is “confidence in the fulfillment of a great
expectation”.
2. In the face of living hope, what are we ready for?
We are ready to perseverely endure all the hardships
along our journey to Heaven (Heb 10.32-36).

  • 1. The Blessed Hope: The Mark of the Christian Adult Bible Lessons 2nd Quarter 2024 CPAD, Magazine: THE CAREER THAT IS PROPOSED TO US: The Path of salvation, holiness and perseverance to reach heaven. Commentator: Pastor Osiel Gomes Presentation: Missionary Celso Napoleon June 23, 2024 Lesson 12
  • 2. “Awaiting the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of the great God and our Lord Jesus Christ.” (Titus 2.13) GOLDEN TEXT 2
  • 3. Christian hope is the anchor that keeps the believer's soul firm in the face of hardships on our journey of faith. PRACTICAL TRUTH 3
  • 4. Second - Rom 8.24,25 Hope is an expectation of what is not seen Tuesday - 1 Pe 1.23 Christian hope is a consequence of the New Birth Wednesday - Gn 3.15; Rev 12.9 Hope as a guiding thread of the Scriptures Thursday - Rom 8.18 What awaits us is greater than current afflictions Friday - Acts 27.29; Hb 6.18,19 Christian hope as an anchor of the soul Saturday - 1 John 3.2,3 The hope of being like Jesus is DAILY READING 4
  • 6. BIBLE READING IN CLASS Romans 8.18-25 18 - For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that will be revealed in us. 19 - For the ardent expectation of the creature awaits the manifestation of the children of God. 20 - For the creation was subject to vanity, not by its will, but because of him who subjected it, 21 - in the hope that the same creature will also be freed from the bondage of corruption, into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. 6
  • 7. 22 - For we know that the whole creation groans and is in labor pains together until now. 23 - And not only she, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, also groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, that is, the redemption of our body. 24 - For in hope we are saved. Now, the hope that is seen is not hope; for what a man sees, how shall he expect it? 25 - But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait patiently for it. 7
  • 8. INTRODUCTION From the moment the believer is born again, he is called to live a life of hope. In this sense, Christian hope has its foundation in the resurrection of the Lord Jesus (1 Peter 1:3, 21). It is a powerful work of God that moves the Church of Christ to work for the cause of his kingdom. Thus, this week's lesson is intended to expose the teaching of Christian hope and how important it is in our journey to heaven. 8
  • 10. 10 I – WHERE DOES THE CHRISTIAN’S HOPE POINT TO?
  • 11. I – WHERE DOES THE CHRISTIAN’S HOPE POINT TO? 1. Christian hope. According to the New Testament, “hope” is a favorable and confident expectation that is based on what cannot be seen, on the future (Rm 8.24,25). In this case, she can anticipate what is good (Titus 1.2; 1 Peter 1.21). It is no coincidence that the apostle Paul writes that the Christian's hope was established through Christ, the “hope of glory” and “our hope” (Col 1:27; 1 Tim 1:1). Therefore, from a biblical point of view, we can say that hope is “confidence in the fulfillment of a great expectation”. 11
  • 12. 2. Hope in the letters of the apostle Paul. The subject of Christian hope is very present in Paul's apostolic letters. In them, we see hope in the resurrection of the dead in Christ (Acts 23:6; 1 Thess 4:13,14); the hope of the promise being fulfilled (Acts 26:6,7); the hope of righteousness (Gal 5:5); the hope of the Gospel (Col 1.5); the hope of the rapture of the Church (1 Thess 5.8); the hope of the vocation (Eph 1:18); the hope of eternal life (Titus 1.2; 3.7); and, finally, the hope of the appearing of the glory of God and the Lord Jesus Christ (Titus 2:13). In Paul's First Letter to the Corinthians, hope appears as the second virtue mentioned there (1 Cor 13:13). 12
  • 13. 3. God: the author of our hope. This hope is a consequence of the New Birth in Christ Jesus, so that this process involves a fully supernatural, spiritual work (1 Pet 1.23). Therefore, God is the author of our hope, as the apostle Paul shows in his letter (Rm 15.13). Therefore, through this living hope, we are ready to perseveringly endure all the hardships along our journey to Heaven (Heb 10.32-36). Now, our faith has been tested by history through cruel persecutions and many other challenges that have always tested us. However, the Church of Christ never succumbed to them, it always prospered and flourished because of a glorious hope that they could never take away from us, the confidence in eternal life with God (Acts 20:24). 13
  • 14. Christian Hope, which has God as its author, points to the future, a glorious reality SYNOPSIS I 14
  • 15. 15 II – THE ESCATOLOGICAL PERSPECTIVE OF CHRISTIAN HOPE
  • 16. 16 II – THE ESCATOLOGICAL PERSPECTIVE OF CHRISTIAN HOPE 1. The Bible focuses on the future. The story of Creation begins with God. The first book of the Bible, Genesis, reveals this to us. Unfortunately, as the events at the beginning of Genesis unfolded, sin caused disharmony in Creation. However, God acts to make everything perfect, balanced and harmonious again. This is what the apostle Paul reveals through his mention of the cosmic scope of the death of Jesus Christ (Eph 1:10). This promise originated in Eden, with the woman's descendant, and is revealed today through Christ as the guiding thread of the Holy Scriptures (Gen 3.15; Rev 12.9).
  • 17. 17 2. Hope in the future brings comfort and joy to the believer. The doctrine of the last things, called Eschatology, studies future things. Many live in fear of the future, of what could happen to them, but Christians take comfort and rejoice in what the Bible says about the future (Rm 15.4). In this aspect, what the Word of God says about what awaits us in eternity with Christ is glorious and incomparable, in that the afflictions of the present time cannot be compared with the glory to be revealed in us (Rm 8.18). Thus, the Bible is a book of prophecy that produces joy and comfort in the heart of the believer. In it, we find a sovereign God, who governs our lives and acts in favor of his people.
  • 18. 18 3. Why a doctrine of hope? The reason we have a doctrine of hope is because we trust in the promise of the resurrection of those who died in Christ, of the transformation of those who are alive at his return (1 Thess 4.13-18). It is a glorious promise to reign with Christ. As we have not yet achieved this promise, we live in hope that everything will soon be fulfilled, because whoever made the promise is faithful to fulfill it (Hb 10.23).
  • 19. Biblical hope brings comfort and joy to the believer throughout his career. SYNOPSIS II 19
  • 20. 20 III – CHRISTIAN HOPE AS ANCHOR OF THE SOUL
  • 21. 21 III – CHRISTIAN HOPE AS ANCHOR OF THE SOUL 1. Our hope as an anchor. We can describe the anchor as a heavy piece of iron attached to a thick chain and thrown to the bottom of the sea with the purpose of keeping a ship stationary (Acts 27:29). The writer of Hebrews describes Christian hope as a “sure and steadfast anchor of the soul” during the journey with Christ (Heb 6:18,19). It represents everything that sustains and stabilizes the believer's soul in times of uncertainty.
  • 22. 22 2. Why is the believer's hope the best? This hope that brings certainty to the soul of the saved cannot be compared with the hope of the wicked. The apostle Paul states that, without Christ, there is no hope for human beings (Eph 2:12). Therefore, it is a vain hope. Consequently, there are several hopes present in human culture. For example, there are religions that express their hope in a cyclical history, as in Hinduism, in which life is seen according to the cycle of birth, death and reincarnation; other people seek to base their hope on astrology, palmistry, among various pagan practices that the Bible prohibits; In politics, many base their hopes on revolutionary actions that are nothing more than illusion. In summary, we can say that all hope outside of Christ is empty, meaningless; hope in Christ is safe, consoling and with purpose (Col 1.27).
  • 23. 23 3. Holding firm to hope. In light of the New Testament, we affirm that the Second Coming of Christ is the great reason for the believer to remain firm and maintain his hope, so that this requires a life of purity to enjoy the promise of being as Jesus is (1 John 3.2, 3). In those days, Christ's disciples understood that his coming would be imminent, that is, it could happen at any time (Mt 25.1-13). Similarly, we must be in readiness, awaiting the day when our Lord will rapture his Church. We do not know the day or hour that the Lord will come, but our part is to keep our hope alive and firm (Luke 18:8).
  • 24. Hope is an anchor for the soul, as it brings firmness and solidity in uncertain times. SYNOPSIS III 24
  • 25. 25 CONCLUSION Struggles, unpleasantness, trials, death, among other things, those saved in Christ will be able to face all of this based on the true hope that is Christ Jesus, our Lord. This way, we will continue our journey without fear and without losing faith. History has witnessed that Christianity grew and prospered because Christians understood that this life is provisional, being just a part of a much greater whole: eternity with Christ. Therefore, let us hold fast the confession of our hope, for he who promised is faithful (Heb 10:23).
  • 26. 1. According to the lesson, and from a biblical point of view, what is hope? From a biblical point of view, we can say that hope is “confidence in the fulfillment of a great expectation”. 2. In the face of living hope, what are we ready for? We are ready to perseverely endure all the hardships along our journey to Heaven (Heb 10.32-36). Reviewing the content 26
  • 27. 3. What kind of book is the Bible? The Bible is a book of prophecy that brings joy and comfort to the heart of the believer. In it, we find a sovereign God, who governs our lives and acts in favor of his people. 4. Why do we have a doctrine of hope? The reason we have a doctrine of hope is because we trust in the promise of the resurrection of those who died in Christ, of the transformation of those who are alive at his return (1 Thess 4.13-18). 5. In light of the New Testament, what can we say about Christian hope? In light of the New Testament, we affirm that the Second Coming of Christ is the great reason for the believer to remain firm and maintain his hope, so that this requires a life of purity to enjoy the promise of being as Jesus is (1 John 3.2, 3). 27
